Sunset at Rockaway Beach

My sweetie and I spent the weekend at Rockaway Beach on the Oregon Coast. The weather was lovely, and Friday night we enjoyed a beautiful sunset.

I never get tired of looking at reflections of the sky on wet sand.

I also never want to leave the beach. It’s possible all my beach pictures look the same, but it’s the only way I have of bringing the shore home with me.

The tide was out, leaving the sand rippled and full of tiny, smooth pools of trapped ocean water.

And the gulls were, of course, noisily present.

Looking at these pictures, it’s easy to see why I use so much pink, orange, blue, and taupe in my knitting and embroidery projects. Those are the colors of the beach at sunset, so they fill me with happiness and tranquility.

I can’t wait to go back.

Good Night
